Our Budget

Taxpayers in the Learning Community are making a positive difference in the lives of children in the Omaha metro area. These children need new and proven programs to overcome poverty and succeed in school. By working with strong community partners, we are finding ways to maximize taxpayer dollars. It's all about a results-based process to support student success and our future workforce.
